Walter Goodwin Davis, Maine and Massachusetts Families in the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis
(Baltimore, MD: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1996) Family Tree Maker CD #194
Three volume set: I. Allanson to French, II. Gardner to Moses, and III. Neal to Wright.
The multi-ancestor compendia compiled and published by Walter Goodwin Davis is one of the major achievements of twentieth-century genealogy. These volumes authoritatively cover 180 families, all of Davis's colonial forebears plus nineteen English families in the immediate ancestry of American immigrants.
The Davis opus is undoubtedly the premier work for northern New England, and an often essential companion volume to the celebrated Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire, which it considerably expands, especially for many Essex County families with ties further north. Almost anyone with considerable New England ancestry--and as many as 100 million living Americans, about 40 percent of the population, have some colonial New England forebears--will descend from one or more, often a dozen or more, of the families herein.
